So, if I lived in America, I never would have voted for Hillary Clinton. Yes, she was incredibly more competent than Donald Trump but I would never forgive her for how she slut shamed the women who accused her husband.
Everybody has a flashpoint, something that they say “No, not this.” For me, it’s sexual harassment. For others, it’s abortion or gun rights or whatever. To me, Hillary was an enabler to her husband’s predatory nature. Even if you didn’t believe the rape allegations, you have to admit that as President of the United States, he was thinking with his d*** and taking advantage of the power differential regarding Monica. I don’t care if she was was willing participant. She was an intern. He had all the power and hey, shouldn’t he had been busy doing other stuff like maybe running the country?
So. here we are today and people are re-examining men’s actions. Is Trump as bad as Moore or Weinstein or Ratner or Louis CK or Al Franken? Everything is contextual. I doubt given the current state of affairs that JFK would have been elected. Is that a bad thing? I’ve leave it to the alternate historians.
The one thing that strikes me is that if Hillary had been elected, we might not be having this conversation about women and empowerment and sex.
So, for the first time ever and with my mouth full of bile, thank god Donald Trump won.
Have to take a stiff drink now.
